Looking at any of lifestyle photographer Gilian Stevens’ work you get the sense that cozy and warm is more than plaid and old rugs. Write down these ideas!

Think beyond the 1980s-90’s home decor look! Go north and warm it up with a reading nook, charming tea or coffee set, sheepskin, wall hanging, plush faux fur and cable knit throws. Enjoy your indoor time with beautiful tableware and beautiful throw pillows.

More wood burning sweetness, and a sheepskin throw -remember minimalism and modern can be warm! Indoor time in winter is about returning to your home, and making it welcoming, warm and stylish. After a long hike, skiing or snow man building, host a small get together or just cuddle up for quiet time solo or with your family…

The Doberman Chair -Great Contemporary Chinese Design- Zha Lianghao-Shanghai

Zha Lianghao The Doberman Project

 

“I think the most important Chinese aesthetic is harmony. It means that the design must in the right place, not too much or too less.” 

 

We can look to China these days for artistic talent, innovative and beautiful design objects. One such player is the Shanghai based designer  Zha Lianghao. The young designer is truly innovative, fusing craft with beauty -and we have to say well, the Doberman Chair -it’s the ultimate artist chair!

Zha Lianghao’s  sleek, conceptually driven project The Doberman Chair has caught the attention of many in the design world. Having only recently graduated from Donghua University, he works today for SAIC and has earned a reputation for a sleek sophisticated sense of design, informed by his industrial and product design and engineering training.

The creation of the Doberman Chair was driven by the artist’s questions about “the pairing of the renaissance of traditional handicraft and contemporary design meeting the  demand of today’s world.

 

the doberman chair

 

It may come as no surprise that Zha Lianghao admires the enduringly modern oeuvre of Charles and Ray Eames. He also notes his appreciation for the work of Daniel Simon, the German conceptual designer, Ross Lovegrove, and Jonathan Ive.

 

Zha Lianghao Doberman Chair_Golden Ratio Final Sketch

golden ratio concept…

The Doberman Chair is Zha Lianghao’s first piece of furniture design, and he shares its genesis:

 

“The Doberman chair was my very last project in university. In planning the work, I used some car design processes. I was very surprised at its popularity. I know that for myself, I like a wide variety of design styles in many mediums such as video games, animation, movies, as well as concept arts, but it really surprised me that other people really responded to the project. Today I work for a Chinese motor company as a car interiors designer. I love to design in different fields, because it broadens my thinking, and gets me closer to my goal of designing something unseen.”

 

Zha Lianghao is remarkably transparent about the process of conceptualizing, developing and making. As such, he contributes to the design and artistic field, allowing his own creative and construction process to be seen, and to be, in part, a formative teaching moment as well as a powerful engagement with the design industry and community. You can see the entire process on his Behance profile.

Decor Tips-Using Persian, Moroccan + Oriental Style Rugs

Discover Decorating Ideas-Mixing Modern with Persian, Moroccan + Oriental Style Rugs

Whether hand-woven antiques from established and reputable antique and vintage dealers, or found in estate sales, these handmade works of art are beautiful additions to any interior, traditional, spanish colonial, farmhouse and rustic modern, Scandinavian, retro mid-century modern, even contemporary. As well there are a number of fine companies offering beautiful rugs that are handmade abroad including India, Pakistan, Turkey Afghanistan, Iran and various other places. Many of the rugs while they reflect regional traditions including Persian decorative elements and Islamic architecture are made for export and show an admixture of signs, motifs, patterns, and artistic additions.

In no way would one wish to classify these contemporary works of art as “reproductions” or knock offs but rather a continuation of the rich artistic cultures of these amazing designers, weavers and artists. It’s quite amazing to see the creative reworking of multi-cultural motifs, patterns, and framing devices within each design.

If you live in a farmhouse style home or maybe an NYC apartment that has seen better days, add an abstract Moroccan style rug for a layered eclectic look and Bohemian flair. Love the contrast of black painted floors with the cream ground of this beautiful geometric woven carpet.

Here we see a lovely mix of a more traditional rug with an updated office chair, dark walls, industry style unfinished floor, and a farmhouse style desk. Wonderful!

A mix of high modern and traditional has an eclectic feel, and is made bright by the canvas like walls, So gorgeous, one can imagine spending hours here with friends and family, reading a book or catching up over tea…

Richness seems a theme here, the beautiful sheepskin throw, ornate patterns on the rug and pillows, offset by white walls, and the cozy feel of a lived space, books, plants and a reading lamp…

Decor Hollywood Regency Style -Project X

via 1st dibs

Project X took me out of my comfort zone is the best of ways… I was thrilled to help a friend and former client develop the glamorous decor and design theme of her very daring home. She wanted something that was Hollywood Regency style but updated and maybe a little over the top in a way that only goes in Vegas. After all, X is a Vegas performer and well, probably one of the most interesting people I have ever met.

This blog is simply a series of mood boards made for X, I am excited to share these collages of sorts because making them was a real adventure for me and they remain visually entrancing…

Dedicated to X and the many risk taking performers, performance artists and adventurers all over the world.

Flowers, stacked books, and ambient lighting are always a winning combination.

TRENDING TIPS

  • A stylish lamp -with low light, but bright enough for reading…
  • A few pretty books
  • Flowers always flowers!
  • Keep it tidy! Leave some empty space..
  • Add pretty things you love, and arrange artfully!
  • Keep your bedroom dust free (easily clean up in a non toxic way –make your own cleaner with lemon juice, lavender essential oil and vinegar and use washable rags to dust away! )
